FinklesteinIn just a few hours the Senate is scheduled to vote on an amendment that would strip funding for steelhead and salmon restoration projects all over the west—including those on California’s Sacramento, Klamath, Trinity, Smith, Eel, and Ventura Rivers (among others).

Via CalTrout: “That’s why we’re asking you to contact Senator Diane Feinstein right now. Tell her to vote “NO” on the McCain amendment to the Continuing Resolution (the CR will fund the government through Sept. 30).”

Contact Feinstein and urge her to vote against the McCain amendment, which will slash $65 million in much needed funding for salmon and steelhead restoration.

Tell her restoration efforts not only benefit fish, but also lead to the creation of commercial/sport fishery and restoration jobs—jobs we need badly in these tough economic times.

If you can’t call, then email Senator Feinstein
